The highest mountain in the Sibillini range, Vettore attracts plenty of walkers, but it is a stunning walk, with probably the best views in the entire range.
There are various routes, but the best walk up is the long path from Foce, which climbs valleys to highland pastures, then on up along ridges to the high summit. It passes the famous Lago di Pilato, where Pontius Pilate is said to have committed suicide, which is home to endemic little red shrimps.
1,580m of climb, so a long and demanding day.
See our Sibillini page for more general and practical information and photos.
